My talented Mum and brother.

I had some fun today.  My photographer brother has come to visit before he moves to Sydney.  We ventured to a local cactus farm and winery to take some photos of our latest quilts.  These two quilts were made recently by my Mum.  The first one is her kaleidoscope quilt.  This photo was taken at the winery in an 1880's restored train carriage.

This second quilt is a star quilt that Mum mostly designed herself.  It is a combination of different star patterns she liked.  The floating star border looks fantastic, it took some working out I believe to get correct but it looks great.



  1. Gosh that star quilt is beautiful. Glad to see that you have had an enjoyable day with you brother and mum.

  2. Both Quilts are Gorgeous congrats to your Mum....Lovely place to take piccies of quilts..

  3. I think you should get your mum to publish her pattern. It's gorgeous!!
    The winery is jaw-dropping gorgeous too. Nice that your bro took some nice pics for you to share with us!

  4. What a fabulous setting for a couple of absolutely gorgeous quilts. I agree with Quilter going Bananas -- your Mom's star quilt is fantastic and a pattern for it would be great!

  5. Awesome photos Julie! Great quilts too!
    If you and Kerri every write a quilting book, your bro must certainly do the photographing! 8-)
